2015 HNGR Symposium

The Hungry Shall Be Filled

2015 Symposium

The 2015 Symposium sponsored by the John Deere Foundation explored the complex linkages between conflict and hunger and underscored the fundamental importance of reconciliation work for regaining food security in post-conflict settings. As the Symposium Plenary Speaker, Dr. Emmanuel Katongole addressed the role of reconciliation in the multiple dimensions of post-conflict recovery, with a focus on regional examples from East Africa that directly address agricultural initiatives as integral to the process of rebuilding peaceful communities that support healthy agrarian societies. 

Fr. Katongole is the co-founder and former co-director of the Center for Reconciliation at Duke University.  Presently he serves as Associate Professor of Theology and Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace.

The Symposium was held on February 26-28, 2015.
